SWU fine arts series features tenor
Broughton, associate professor of voice at the University of Georgia, was appointed to the School of Music faculty in 1988.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in music education from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, where his concentration was in vocal and choral music. He received his master’s and doctorate degrees from the University of Michigan.
Broughton’s major solo engagements include contracts with the Seattle Symphony, the Toledo Symphony and the Memphis Symphony. He also was tenor soloist in the world premiere of “Montage Martin” by Stephen Newby, with the composer and members of the Savannah Symphony. Broughton has also enjoyed many operatic engagements.
As a result of successful performing and teaching, Broughton is a sought-after clinician and adjudicator for solo vocal and choral workshops and competitions.
